[GB] GMK Mudbeam - LIVE until October 30!
« on: Fri, 09 October 2020, 13:15:18 »





(pic by 89sec)

First of all, here are vendor links to buy the set: 
USA - NovelKeys 
Canada: Desk Hero 
Europe - mykeyboard.eu
Oceania - Daily Clack 
Asia - zFrontier (English) 
Asia - zFrontier (Chinese) 

Renders:
Here are kit renders for you to peruse.
And here are various board renders.
All renders are by Janglad, and the novelties were created by biip.

This is a keyset inspired by the Mudbeam colorway from Hunger Work Studio.  The colors for this kit will be custom, matched to resin samples provided by HWS.  The GB will run until October 30, and the current estimate for shipping is May 2021.

Click here to check out the colors in the set compared with some GMK standard colors.  The quarter circles were sanded and the eighth circles were not.  GMK has a semi-matte finish so the ultimate result should be somewhere between those two.

Since this is, to my knowledge, the first keyset inspired by artisan keycaps there will be quite a bit of artisan support for the set.  The first artisan raffle will happen about 2 weeks after the GB is complete, and is currently slated to have caps from Artkey, Ritual Master, LazyCaps, Fraktal Caps, Hunger Work Studio, and Destroyer Caps.  PrimeCaps will also be making matching artisans, though they may not be ready for the first raffle.  All of these will be exclusive to GB participants.  Alpha Keycaps will also be participating, with details to be provided later.  Other collabs are in discussion, and if you're an artisan maker and would like to participate please get in touch!

For the artisan raffle, GB participants will get 1 entry for each base kit purchased and 1 entry for every 2 other kits purchased (no maximum limit).  The raffle will be open for at least 24hrs to make sure everybody that wants to join it has a chance, and it will be announced on my Instagram account, here, and on Reddit.

Please follow my new Instagram account for news and updates, though Iíll also post some updates here.

Here's a pic of the Artkey 4 monster caps that will be in the raffle:

Is there a reason why the novelty kit is at that price? MOQ?

Yes, the kits are priced for the lowest MOQ (100).  I would guess that for, eg, Grand Prix it's priced for 250 MOQ though I can't be certain.

Speaking of bananas ....



Banana and Blank by Fraktal Kaps.  These will be part of the artisan raffle that is exclusive to GB participants, taking place in mid-November.  As a reminder, you get 1 raffle entry per base kit purchased, and an additional entry for every 2 other kits purchased.  Cost of the artisans will vary.

More previews coming!

The Ergo kit is being updated to include one more R4c 2u, two more R4 1.5u, and two more R4 1u, all in gray.  The price for the kit will remain the same.  This will be updated on the kit renders hopefully later today.

Updated Ergo kit render:



This should be reflected on the vendor pages soon, but regardless of when you order this is what you'll receive.

is there any possibility that I can buy more wire keycaps in both colors? so that plunger/wire/dynamite can be strung across the whole F-row.
I like that idea so much!

I'm hoping to buy a lot of extras of the wire caps, but it's not guaranteed yet.  If it happens then I'd be selling those directly after the GB is fulfilled.  Once I have more definite info I'll update here.

Yes, please try to make it happen!  If you put it down I'll buy ten of each color for sure. I already ordered the sets, cheers.

One week left to buy GMK Mudbeam!  Vendor links in the first post.

Here's the deskmat design for GMK Mudbeam by Nephlock.  The GB for it will happen after the keyset GB has completed.



The artisan cap raffle is still scheduled for mid-November.  Included will be caps from Artkey, Fraktal Kaps, Ritual Master, LazyCaps, and Hunger Work Studio.  PrimeCaps might make it in, but those might be raffled separately later.

These caps are all exclusive to GB participants.  You get one raffle entry per base kit, and one entry for every 2 other kits purchased, from any vendor.

Additionally, there will be caps from Alpha Keycaps available via public (ie, not exclusive to GB participants) raffle at some point.  A few other collabs are possible, and details will be provided once they're available.
